I might have found the ID of this blue wildflower I found growing along roads sides in Brazil (Paraty)..
Anyone disagrees? Smiling

The flowers would seem to be too big for the Blue Porterweed.

Thanks Hetty! It might be impossible to find its ID, there is so little info on the web on Brazilian wildflowers apart from the more showy ones.. Rolling my eyes.
But I think it should be in the Verbenaceae family...

No doubt that it is Stachytarpheta. Possibly Stachytarpheta cayennensis.

I'm not sure Stachytarpheta cayennensis is the correct one, there's a lot of species in Brazil. I found one with leaves which look a perfect match but with no species and no flowers!

I don't think the leaves quite match Stachytarpheta cayennensis, nor do the flowers. On Myriam's plant the flower petals are not as rounded.
